how can a user send email from multiple internet domians using exchange 2007


I have sbs2008.  Ive configured 3 accepted domains in the hub transport.  One of them is the default.  Each user can receive emails from all 3 domains into their mailboxes.  However they need to be able to send from one of the two other domains.

for example.  user receives email as user@domain1.com (default), user@ domain2.com and user@domain3.com the user can send as user@ domain1.com but needs to also send as user@domain2.com and user@domain3.com.    is this possible? and how?

From my knowledge you can only send from the default domain.
The discussion attached to this blog post shows one way to do it (see the comment by Mark McDonald):


That's pretty kludgy, though.  Good luck if you decide to try it!
Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

before we moved to exchange we were using pop3 in outlook.  users simply had multiple accounts which they could select from when sending.

i cant believe there is no way to do this in exchange. there seems to be a few workarounds but they all involve tinkering with the default setup which never usually ends well.
There is no simple way with exchange.

What you want cannot be done natively in Exchange the way you want. If creating separate AD objects is not of interest to you then there are 3rd-party products that will help out.

Ivasoft makes two products that can be helpful. First and most importantly, their "ChooseFrom" product will override the display-name/from address magic that Exchange likes to do. Then, if you want to provide a kinder GUI in Outlook, their SmartReply product will fulfill the client-side of that equation.
